Project Information

Amadeus is a holistic service-oriented environment for QoS-aware Grid workflows. Amadeus considers user's requirements, in terms of QoS constraints, during workflow specification, planning, and execution. Within the Amadeus environment, workflows and the associated QoS constraints are specified at a high-level using an intuitive graphical notation.

A set of QoS-aware service-oriented components is provided for workflow planning to support automatic constraint-based service negotiation and workflow optimization. For improving the efficiency of workflow planning, we introduced a QoS-aware workflow reduction technique. By following either a static or a dynamic planning strategy the workflow is executed using the selected services in the manner that the specified user's requirements are met.


Amadeus Architecture


The main components of the Amadeus architecture include:

  • Teuta - a UML based graphical editor for workflow specification
  • QWE - a QoS-aware workflow engine
  • VGE services - QoS-aware Grid services
